By Editor


Uruguay’s state-owned power company UTE has handed the contract for a 142MW project to German wind power company Nordex.

Nordex will be installing fifty-nine N117/2400 low-wind turbines at the Pampa wind project under the department of Tacuarembo in central Uruguay as stipulated in the contract.

According to Nordex, it will be completing the project for commission by the middle of next year if construction begins as scheduled in the second half of this year.

German banks KfW Ipex and BayernLB will be part financing the $320-million project through a $224-million loan.

Nordex has already completed 120MW of wind projects (50MW Melowind project in Cuchilla, and 67MW Juan Pablo Terra project in Artigas) in Uruguay.
